Computed Tomography for Radiographers by M.J. Brooker

By M.J. Brooker

The aim of this publication is to offer the reader a easy Computed Tomography for Radiographers is split into advent to computed tomography. it's also directed sections. half 1 is devoted to the technical points of in the direction of qualifying radiographers and to all certified in step with­ computed tomography and half 2 to the medical features. sonnel who're linked to computed tomography. Computed tomography can be often called: Computed tomography is a fancy know-how, however it has Computed axial tomography (CAT) been my target to maintain the textual content concise utilizing diagrams and Computed aided tomography (CAT) photos at any place attainable. a short evaluation of X-ray tubes and Computed transvt~rse axial tomography (CTAT) basic physics has been given, even supposing the math of Computed transmission tomography (CTT) photo reconstruction has been passed over. If required, Reconstruction tomography (RT) devoted works at the above matters can be noted by way of Selective computed assisted tomography (SCAT) the reader. This publication concentrates at the software of the Transmission axial tomography (TAT) above to computed tomography.

Example text

CT images - are viewed as a grey scale image, coloured images are available but their use is limited. 13 demonstrates a CT image comprising areas of high X-ray attenuation which are represented as the white areas, and areas of low attenuation which are represented as 'blackness'. This is similar to conventional radiography where the various grey levels within the image represent varying levels of X-ray attenuation. Because of the sensitivity of CT there is a much wider range of variation in the shades of grey than present in conventional radiography.

Preparation room The preparation room has to be carefully designed as it has many requirements. This room has to be clinical of design, but again the choice of colour scheme is just as important as in the waiting room. The preparation room should be supplied with the following: (1) (2) (3) (4) (5) (6) (7) (8) (9) (10) (11) (12) One or more preparation couches on wheels, Dividing curtain between above, Resuscitation equipment, Defibrillator if CT department is isolated from hospital system, Anaesthetic equipment, Adequate heating facilities, Piped oxygen and vacuum, Adequate storage facilities for equipment, Sink, Sluice facilities, Drinking water supply, and Adequate worktops.

Jewellery and watches should also be removed. Warm dressing gowns and blankets must be available. It is a good idea to change patients before an oral contrast medium is given in case they vomit, in this way a hospital gown is soiled and not the patient's clothes. More personal items such as false teeth, hearing aids and wigs must be removed prior to head scanning, but this may be done in the privacy of the gantry room. It is therefore essential to have a sink and a mirror in the gantry room. It is also important that the gantry room is warm but not 'stuffy' for the patient.
